I was playing the rival baseball team, the NRV Heat. Coach Turpin had me on the mound. There were two outs in the bottom of the last inning. I was shell-shocked. The enemies had never lost to us, and they had the best players in the region. We had only won a few games out of the dozen we had played that summer. I could not stay relaxed because of the extreme pressure that was on me. We had been working harder than ever during practice to beat this team. Everyone knew that the game would change our team's reputation if we won. That day will always be remembered.
In my opinion it is the best sport that I have ever came in contact with. Between Baseball, Basketball, Tennis and Track I believe that Football is the greatest sport ever created. It is my favorite thing in popular culture right now. The game of Football also allowed me to build character and grow as a person, and it taught me how to preserver through adversity. This game has enhanced my perception about commitment and sacrifice. This sport is the reason that I am able to attend the Howard University. This game is also a good stress reliever; I mean who wouldn’t want to hit someone legally without getting in trouble.
As the count goes 0-2 Shelly shoots a nasty curve ball to get the first out, the second out is also a strikeout. The third out comes with a ground ball to Colby at shortstop. All of our outs came very quick with a groundout, flyout, and strikeout. Almost all the innings went very quick especially since no you got a run, however, both teams did eventually get a hit in the 4th and 5th innings. The hits did no harm either way. We had many chances to take the lead, but we were not able to come through. With a player at the plate, and a 3-2 count, they get a walk, which puts him on first. “One pitch at a time, turn two!” Bam! A base hit to left field, now they have a runner in scoring position, that enables them to score on a base hit. Oh no, it can be, why now, a hard line drive flies through the air toward left-center field. Woho! Great play! A spectacular diving catch by Spanky. It was just what we needed. The next play we get a ground ball to Colby for the last out. Bottom of the fifth inning bases loaded, Jack’s at the plate. Crack……..a fly ball with two outs, and we can’t even get a run. That is the second time Jack has done that, with bases loaded. We were all very
The game started and our team was batting, and I was third on the batting order. I was nervous because it was only my second season and the other team’s pitcher was pitching fast. Isaiah batted and hit, Miles struck out, and I struck out and was disappointed.
Over my years of school, one big influence on me has always been sports. Ever since a young age, I have always enjoyed playing and watching sports. In my four years in high school, I have fell in love with the sport of lacrosse.
Football is back as the first preseason game was played last Thursday. With football coming back, so does fantasy football. Like a lot of people (myself included), you’re scouring the internet for rankings. There’s plenty of rankings out there, but none of them tell you where to take a defense. I am going to present my strategy.
I woke up and took one bite out of my pop tart but that one bite was all I could eat. My legs were shaking, and my heart was pounding. My dad told me, “It is a true honor to even make it this far so go out there and have some fun.” Once I heard this statement, I knew I was ready to go. I arrived at school and boarded the bus. The car ride was an hour and fifteen minutes of hearing the squeaking of the wheel on the bus. My teammates were getting their heads ready for the big game.
Football has been a big part of my life for as long as I could remember. Ever since I was in 2nd grade football has been my passion. Currently, I stand at 6”8, 260 pounds and I play right tackle for the Fayetteville Bulldogs. Football has shaped me up to the young man I am today and helped me get through the most tragic moment in my life.
It all started in 7th grade, our football team was at the time undefeated and we were in our second to last game. We were up by quite a bit and our team was feeling sanguine, our coach didn’t put too much thought into it, and called a run up the middle with our star running back Michael Lundy. He Got the ball and ran for Three short yards then suddenly tripped over a pile of angry, impassioned, irritable teenage boys. Michael had landed wrong and you could see by his expressions he was hurt, his dad came on the field and helped carry him off. We were forced to continue the game without Michael, which wasn’t all that bad because there were only three minutes left in the game. We the Philomath 7th grade braves had won our second to last game
It was opening night for our football team, a chilly night in September against one of our rivals, the Nickerson Panthers. The stands were packed like a can of sardines. Our team had been ruling the scoreboard all night, but now the panthers were in the red zone threatening to score. Three years ago we wouldn’t have had a chance against this team, but now we had the upper hand. Through the weightlifting program and improvement of team building, success is inevitable. Our football team is a great example of how hard work and great leadership not only pull a group of kids, but also a whole community together.
